Cardiac catheterization laboratories in Apollonion Hospital, Nicosia

 

The cardiac catheterization laboratories in Apollonion Hospital is staffed by a multidisciplinary team that includes a consultant interventional cardiologist, a specialist cardiac electrophysiology and device implantation, experienced nurses and radiographers.

"Cardiac catheterization" is a general term for a group of procedures that are performed using this method, such as coronary angiography, as well as left ventricle angiography. Once the catheter is in place, it can be used to perform a number of procedures including angioplasty, PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention) angiography, and an Electrophysiology study or Catheter ablation.

A list of procedures carried out in a Cath Lab includes:

 

We provide a 24/7 consultant delivered service for urgent and emergency PCI for patients with acute myocardial infarction.

We have access to the full range of interventional diagnostic and therapeutic equipment (intra-vascular ultrasound, fractional flow reserve etc).

95% of our elective PCIs are cases performed through the radial access (well above the national average).
